ONTARIO – Toronto-based St Andrew Goldfields (SAS) is cutting good grades at its Hislop North gold property northwest of the Hislop mine. The longest intersection was 24.0 metres (core length) grading 10.22 g/t Au including 11.91 g/t over 8.5 metres and including 23.22 g/t over 5.9 metres from hole H12-029.
The Hislop North property lies about 45 km west of SAS's Holloway-Holt gold mine, which is 45 km northeast of Kirkland Lake. The company says the mineralization remains open in all directions and drilling will continue at Hislop North this year.
SAS is enjoying more drilling success at the Ghost zone at the Holt mine and east of the Smoke Deep zone at the Holloway mine. Ghost has been traced to 400 metres east of the underground workings of the Holt mine, and the zone is seen as important for long term development at Holt. Drilling from the 780 metre ramp in the Smoke Deep zone has extended that zone by an additional 50 metres, making the total strike length 450 metres. The zone is open at depth and along strike to the east.
